      2nd Annual BEworks Summit for Behavioural Science in Business

      Behavioral Science is helping organisations solve their biggest challenges. Learn how from world-leading behavioral scientists who will be in Toronto for one day only. Join us at the Summit for Behavioral Science in Business, where the world's most influential behavioral scientists will connect what we know about the science of how people make decisions to policy and business strategy. You will get insights about human behavior that can be applied to overcome stubborn challenges in business and the public sector. You will also get to connect with other business leaders who are adopting scientific approaches to accelerate innovation in their organisations. This summit is meant for leaders who are looking to disrupt their organizations' thinking and who approach challenges with scientific curiosity. “If business leaders truly want to accelerate change, take risks and advance innovation, they must embed the rigor and discipline of scientific thinking into their organizations.” — Kelly Peters, CEO and Co-Founder, BEworks HIGHLIGHTS OF THE DAY Breakfast with the Philosophers in Walker Court Registration and welcome package followed by an enjoyable continental breakfast and conversation.
